Bar Monette to feature tapas and wine bar with a mid-century library-inspired interior, with Neapolitan pizza
Neapolitan pizza fans, get ready! Bar Monette is coming to Santa Monica on April 7. This refined tapas and wine bar will feature Neapolitan-style pizzas made with high-quality ingredients sourced from Italy.
Located at 109 Santa Monica Boulevard, the 900-square-foot space previously housed Little Ruby.Bar Monette, named after owner MacDonald’s wife Monette, will serve 20 covers inside and 12 outside on a patio boasting an ocean view. A heavy focus will be on Neapolitan-style pizzas made with a special recipe dough developed by MacDonald that uses high-quality ingredients sourced from Italy. The menu will also include small plates designed to pair with the pizza, a selection of sauces and dips for the crusts, and a small selection of addizionale. Desserts will be changed daily depending on seasonality and chef preference. The menu will change seasonally and offer vegan and vegetarian options.
The drinks menu will offer a unique selection of natural wines and beers alongside a water menu that highlights a choice of carbonation level and mineral content.
The interior of Bar Monette will be designed by MacDonald himself and is intended to look like a mid-century library.
Bar Monette will be open for walk-ins only from midday to midnight, closed Sundays, and will be cashless. Reservations will be available for events.
